    • Trip to Himachal

      Overall satisfactory but could have made excellent trip if all the promises made in itinerary were fulfilled. It was promised that I would be provided a private cab but it was on sharing basis that is annoying,, It was promised that I would be provided a Sedan Dezire but was given alto for half of the trip again annoying and more disappointing when you have charged extra on the name of that. I was promised it would be private cab only for you during Rohtang Pass and you charged extra 7 thousand for the same but after reaching there you denied straight away, and provided a sharing cab and that too an Alto instead of Dezire promised in Itinerary. Your driver was not even aware of the hotel name and address when we reached Manali, Disappointing but just saying satisfactory because of the nice weather. Please don't make false commitment when you cannot fulfil.

    • Trip to Himachal by Vaarun Gopinath

      Thanks for screwing up my Honeymoon!!!!..... i never thought paying the last installment will change the method of your service.... the first half of the trip til Shimla was amazing I reached Manali and everything broke loose.. incidentally that was the day i made the last installment.... i would like to know once you go on a honeymoon through a travel partner.. shouldn't the partner mention to you.. when the honey moon additions are going to be given... rather than me asking for the same and then you ask me to give the keys to the reception and go out for the day itinerary and while i come back.. will be surprised with the honeymoon package.. yeah i decided to surprise my wife by bringing her into the room closing her eyes,,, guess who was surprised me as nothing was done.. then i am told that this hotel does it only in the night.. so i completely cancel the honey moon package i have booked this package a month in advance and when they send me my return tickets to Delhi its the last row seats (34,35), dont you guys think before booking the tickets 12 hours of Journey in the back seat even though i have given you ample time to plan this trip... i had a long chat with them and i finally decided to book my own tickets to return costed my 3.6k INR and they refunded me 2k INR... if this is the way you people plan Honeymoons... please stop!!........ it means a lot for the couple and i personally would not want to keep fighting with my travel vendor while on my honeymoon.. which you guys made me do it.... Once again,. thanks for screwing up my Honeymoon!!!!

      It was a good trip overall. The hotels were good but Dharamshala and Dalhousie hotels could have been little better. The driver was cooperative and knew the routes very well. Shubham was always available for any help. Thank you Shubham for all the help.

    • Trip to Himachal

      It was a amazing trip, well managed by travel agent YashRaj, who was always available on call/whatsapp. Cab driver was also very supportive throughout the trip. Luckily Rohtang pass had just opened when we reached the Manali(June 1st week) and it was heavy traffic that time as always, but due to coordination of Yashraj & cab driver we could manage to visit rohtang on time successfully, we left from hotel on 2AM at night otherwise reaching Rohtang in morning wasn't possible. Actually I choose this travel agency due to Hotel Apple Cresent they were offering in their plan which has good reviews on other traveling sites, and It was a good decision afterall, as the hotel is very good in terms of awesome view, good staff and spacious room with jacuzzi attached in the washroom. Overall it was a awesome trip with good memories.

    • Trip to Himachal

      The trip was almost good. But the driver asked money which the company has to manage by themselves and the driver also told us not take anywhere else which is not in quotation.Also the driver skipped many places and told us that there is no such sight seen at that area, so he will not take. The driver was getting irritated if we tell us to take to some places The room that has been provided was excellent and there room service was also very good

    FAQ's of Dharamshala

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Yes, it is completely safe in Dharamshala. One will find hundreds of tourists anytime they visit the place. Moreover, the locals are quite friendly and helpful.

    The Triund trek is suitable for most people. It is an easy trek of 11km with an uphill trek of 4-5 hours.

    Paragliding at Bir is quite safe. Just follow the instructions properly. Do ask your para-pilot for his license to make sure he is an expert. However, no adventure activity is 100% safe.

    Dal Lake, Namgyal monastery, Bhagsunag temple and waterfall, Kangra Art Museum, HPCA stadium and Tibet museum are some of the places one can visit in Dharamshala.

     

     

    Dharamshala has plenty of shops selling Himachali clothes and various kinds of handicrafts mostly associated with Buddhism and Tibet.

    Backpackers Hostel, McLeod Ganj and Zostel, Bir are the top options for a person travelling alone. These are the hostels introduced with the concept of getting travellers from different countries and places together at a very nominal rent that is ideal for a solo traveller.
